Excellent local credit union for Stanford-affiliated individuals

Posted by: aychen24 | Oct 14, 2016

Stanford Federal Credit Union (SFCU) has generally exceeded my expectations. I have a checking account there and they do not charge a fee for such accounts, nor do they have monetary minimums below which they will charge a fee. Additionally, they have excellent customer service. In the past when I have had my debit card number compromised, they were very helpful both in accurately spotting the fraud and in giving me a new card very quickly. Additionally, use of ATMs with my credit union debit card is fairly easy, since any major credit union ATM works. I have also deposited money in their CDs before and they usually offer above-market rate interest returns and are very easy to sign up for and to know when the CD time period has expired.

Poor Customer Service, Harsh Early Withdrawal Penalty

Posted by: Lookin | Aug 29, 2012

You'd think a credit union located on campus at Stanford would be great.  But no.  Calls go into voicemail, email contacts are generic addresses and you can never seem to get the same person twice.  Staff is frumpy and don't seem to care.   If their app fails, they just shrug it off - try it tomorrow.   Early withdrawal penalty for CDs over $100K is 365 days interest - worst I've seen.  A good CD jumbo rate of 2.1% if your paycheck is deposited there (as of summer 2012).    Campus office is rather busy, so Stanford students and staff are using this credit union, but I don't know why.
